Mrs. Cathey started teaching flute and piano at the age of 14. She began teaching band, chorus and general music to elementary students in Covina-Valley USD in 1995. She loves elementary age students, because in many cases, she gets to teach music to the students for the very first time.
In 2015-2016, Mrs. Cathey is also serving as the Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator for Covina Valley Schools. She will be helping our schools find more ways to integrate all arts (visual art, music, dance and theatre).
Mrs. Cathey also teaches at Azusa Pacific University (where she went to college!). She has a husband, four grown children, and three grandchildren, who all love music. A family favorite is singing Christmas carols in the car, and giving everyone a different note to start on.
Yosemite, CA is a frequent vacation spot for Mrs. Cathey and her family in the summertime.
